I came across this hat, all i can say is - I LOVE IT!! Thanks for posting it! I can't get on with dpns, so i tried it on straight needles and it worked out ok.

Thanks for the cute pattern - I was looking for a fun, simple hat for babies to send to my cousin serving in Afghanistan. He's a medic, so I think he'll find lots of little ones to share them with.

This seems simple enough for a hat someone asked me to make. Thank you so much for posting! I think I would've been searching for hours without it.
